Although a lot of people enjoy a tipple every now and then many people are deterred from drinking alcohol because of the hangover the next day. For some people all it takes is one drink to develop a throbbing headache or other hangover related symptoms. There may help in sight.
A chemical engineering professor and wine enthusiast Yufeng Lu from the University of California, Los Angeles decided to tackle this problem and help people enjoy a couple of drinks without the fear of a hangover.
Lu developed capsules filled with natural enzymes usually found in liver cells to help the body process the alcohol quicker.
Testing the antidote on mice has proven promising so far with the capsules decreasing blood alcohol levels in inebriated mice by 45 per cent.
